Carer Needs

We take the welfare of carers very seriously indeed. If you care for someone, or you have a carer please let us know or complete the supplementary form giving details, with their written permission to keep these details on record if necessary (full instructions on the form).

Carers are entitled to a full assessment of their own needs by Social Services and additional healthcare services (such as fee flu vaccinations) and we can refer you to them should you want us to do so. Please register at the Reception and ask for a registration form for the Wakefield Carers Association who provide an information support service.

Please see the links to useful patient information for the link to the local Carers’ Association website.

Booking appointments

When contacting the practice to book an appointment, please be aware that you will be asked for information by the Medical Care Navigators. They need to know, to help them ensure that patients are seen by the most appropriate service to deal with the situation. Anything you tell them will be treated in absolute confidence.
